 Dear Rick and Mary,

 Thank you very much for your reply!

 However, the NCL on my computer is NCL 5.1.0.

 So I have to update the NCL to 5.1.1 to get what I want?

 Thank you again for your help!

 Best Regards,

 Hi Xiaoming,

 If you have version 5.1.1 of NCL, then you can download the shapefile
 data file that's provided in the URL, and use the attached script
 "SouthAmerica.ncl" to plot the data, Please see the PNG image as well.

 There are over 8000 individual line segments being "added" to the map,
 which can be a bit time-consuming. If you don't need to resize your
 plot (like to panel it), then it will be faster to use "gsn_polyline"
 rather than "gsn_add_polyline". The wall clock time goes from about
 50.5 seconds to 8.7 seconds.

 See the "SouthAmerica_faster.ncl" script for the faster version.
